Sutton Area Support Group

All meetings will be held at:

Trinity Church Hall Trinity Church Cheam Road Sutton SM1 1DZ

Everyone is welcome to attend our meetings.

Our group was set up in 2014 with the aim of providing information and support to people with osteoporosis, and generally raising awareness of the condition in the community. Our activities are focussed in the borough of Sutton, although we also publicise our events in Merton, Epsom & Ewell and Kingston, and we encourage and welcome anyone to join our support group or attend our events.

Venue

Meetings take place at Trinity Church Hall, Trinity Church, Cheam Road, Sutton, Surrey SM1 1DZ. The Church is in the centre of Sutton, opposite the Sutton Central Library and SCOLA.

A £2 entrance donation is requested which includes refreshments. All contributions are used to fund the Support Group for room hire, administration costs, etc.

Please note that Support Group meeting content as advertised may change at short notice due to unforeseen circumstances.

Volunteering

Our group is run by volunteers and to ensure it continues to thrive, we would welcome some more help.  We would like to create a pool of active supporters we could call on depending on the requirements of our programme – either for occasional one-off activities,  or more regular help at our events.

We held a talk on Wednesday the 1st of March titled Vitamins, Minerals and Healthy Bones

Dr. Amelia Moore from Kings College Hospital London gave the talk on 'Vitamins, Minerals and Healthy Bones' which was very well received by the 40 strong audience.

There then followed a Q & A session which went on for nearly the length of the lecture, such is the interest generated by such a competent and knowledgeable speaker as Dr.Moore.
